Sebastian Inlet Report
10-22-15 THURSDAY: SLOW BITE
Winds are blowing out of the East-Northeast at 15 mph, gusting to 18 and there is a considerable chop around the jetties and on the ICW. NOAA has issued a small craft advisory. The jetty is drier today than it has been, there were no waves crashing over the rails this morning. A heavy downpour occurred this morning and a few sprinkles are expected throughout the day.
Since our sources have clammed up, disappeared or not shown up, a walk out onto the north jetty was necessary this morning to see what was happening. The bite wasn't very good even though there was plenty of baitfish in the water. A few Ladyfish, Catfish and Jacks came over the rails. One very large Black Drum in the 40 lb. range was landed, along with a couple of mid-sized Black Drum. One lower slot Red was landed. Tommy Turowski at the Sebastian Inlet Bait and Tackle Shop said yesterday there were some Reds, a few Black Drum and some Sheepshead landed off the north jetty and Blues were hitting in the surf.
Our photo today features Brahim Khalil with a decent sized Flounder he landed off the north jetty.
